  1. I expected a larger upgrade in HD, but it looked little better than an up-converted DVD (on the best up-convert players) on BD. Menu was horrible and primative. The video extras were in not so good quality. Not as bad as I am writing, but just not the big step up that I thought or expected.

    I can see the set ups of re-releases starting now. For they give us something, then what was not in HD sound they re-release in it, then they re-release again with extras in HD, and at last they give us “enhanced color” versions that “bring out even more details.”

    This movies is good because of the rappers. It goes to show that aside from the rap music not being as good and the cell phones, 1998 looks no different than 2008! In fact, the same can be said for 1995/96 and 2008. Practically the same.

  3. belly is a very compeling movie especially if you are from the urban area

    you can relate with the concept of this film. if you are not from an urban enviroment its pretty hard to relate to this movie. that’s why i think this movie got a lot of negative ratings when it first was release in the theaters. the blue-ray transfer its pretty good i highly recomend this film.

  4. To be honest when I first opened this one up I didn’t really hope for much…but the opening scene (UV reaction and that song!) really pulled me in, I wasn’t sure what to expect but as the movie progresses you get more and more mesmerized by it!

    I wont ruin anything about the movie except for the fact that alot of people will probably pass it by because of a hate for rap and/or hip hop, however this film really shines and shows some of the real ins and outs of loyalty, respect, and friendship!

    The Blu Ray transfer is a pretty nice step up from the DVD copy I also own, as expected colors are bright, and characters have excellent skin tones…will very little grain or motion blur.

    Sound is personally my favorite part of this movie, from the hard hitting hip hop soundtracks, the movie sounds and dialogue never suffer or become hard to hear!

    This movie is definitely worth a look, you have nothing to lose, don’t miss out on a great movie!

  5. I can wholeheartedly say that if you watch this as a visual marvel and treat it as a long form video it’s classic. In fact, stylistically you’d be hard pressed to match it. If you are watching it to get an original or complex plot, you’re in trouble. I’ve read reviews where people claim that it didn’t have a plot. That’s not true, it’s just that what is there is cliche. If you’re an older person the language and obscenities will leave you cringing but I can tell you flat out, it’s how many urban youth speak. I’m not treating this as a good or bad thing, it just is. I think this movie has the potential to become a cult classic.
